Oily black pour, small head. Smells like a herbal bitter, very strong, cognac obviously. Flavor its huge, dark chocolate, candy fruit, very full bodied, no harshness despite alcohol warmth, very well balanced. Dessert in a glass, exceptional.

The beer is black with a small tan head. Brown at the edges. The aroma has a big brown sugar note with a little bit of raisiny sweetness. Sugar cookie, molasses, mild roast. Pretty big vinous, cognac barrel note. Fairly sweet. Lots of barrel flavor. A little bit of acidity.
